Senior Software Engineer - Dataflows
Herzliya, Tel Aviv, Israel | Engineering | May 02, 2022

Do you want to build innovative, industry-leading experiences for connecting to, browsing, querying, and transforming the world’s data regardless of where it resides? Would you enjoy working on an engine for uniform data access, distributed querying over heterogenous data sources, and automated orchestration of dataflows? Do you look forward to the challenge of building a highly scalable, multi-tenant service that needs to process petabytes of data on a daily basis? Do you want to make the ingestion of data into data lakes accessible to citizen data scientists? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions and are looking to work with a high-powered team intent on changing the way the world works with data, we’d love to chat with you.


We’re the team that already develops the Mashup Engine (M) and Power Query. We ship on a weekly/monthly basis to millions of users across Excel, Power/Pro BI, Flow, and PowerApps; but in many ways we’re just getting started. We’re building a new dataflow service with engine capabilities that will broaden the reach of our technologies to several new areas – automated dataflow, “intelligent” data prep, and large-scale data analytics. We plan to use example-based interaction and innovative visualization to make data access and transformation even more intuitive for non-technical users.


If the “democratization of data” sounds like a compelling mission, this is the team for you.


We are looking for a highly collaborative senior technical leader who can drive architecture and/or complex features across multiple layers of our system – engine, service, and UI.

  • Engine layer: designing and implementing components for dataflow orchestration, distributed querying, query translation, connecting to external data sources, and script parsing/interpretation
  • Service layer: designing and implementing infrastructure for a containerized, micro services based, high throughput architecture
  • UI layer: designing and implementing performant, engaging web user interfaces for data visualization/exploration/transformation/connectivity and dataflow management


Basic qualifications:

  • 4+ years of C#, Java, or C++ software engineering experience
  • 6+ years of product development experience


Preferred Qualifications:

  • BS degree in Computer Science
  • Service layer: familiarity with micro-service architectures, Docker, Service Fabric, Azure blobs/tables/databases, high throughput services
  • Engine layer: familiarity with one or more data access technologies (e.g. ODBC, JDBC, OLEDB, ADO.Net, OData), one or more query languages (e.g. T-SQL, Spark SQL, Hive, MDX, DAX), query generation/optimization
  • UI layer: familiarity with JavaScript, TypeScript, CSS, React, Redux, webpack
